Friends in Life……LAUGH with DORAZ*

Thought for the day:

Women are angels. And when someone breaks our wings,

we simply continue to fly…on a broomstick.

We are flexible like that.

A husband read an article to his wife about how many words women use a day…

30,000 to a man’s 15,000.

The wife replied, ‘The reason has to be because we have to repeat everything to men…..

The husband then turned to his wife and asked, ‘What?’

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE…
One friend who
Always makes her Laugh…
And one
Who lets her cry…

HOW OFTEN DO YOU GET TO SPEND TIME WITH YOUR “LONGTIME” FRIENDS?

A Nativity Story for Children*

Real Meaning of Christmas by Brian K. Walters

In today’s day and time,
it’s easy to lose sight,
of the true meaning of Christmas
and one special night.

When we go shopping,
We say “How much will it cost?”
Then the true meaning of Christmas,
Somehow becomes lost.

Amidst the tinsel, glitter
And ribbons of gold,
We forget about the child,
born on a night so cold.

The children look for Santa
In his big, red sleigh
Never thinking of the baby
Whose bed was made of hay.

In reality when we look into the night sky,
We don’t see a sleigh
But a star, burning bright and high.

A faithful reminder,
Of that night so long ago,
And of the child we call Jesus,
Whose love, the world would know.

Help children learn about the Nativity by selecting a safe, sturdy, attractive, and kid-friendly family Nativity set made from materials such as plastic, fabric, or wood.

There’s more to Christmas than presents, turkeys and trees. The nativity story has delighted children for hundreds of years and, unless it is against your beliefs, it is good to keep up the tradition. There is a good selection of books available to help you, ranging from straight retellings to humorous ones.

Merry Christmas to you all!

AFTER BEING MARRIED FOR 30 YEARS, I TOOK A CAREFUL LOOK AT
MY WIFE ONE DAY AND SAID, ‘HONEY, 30 YEARS AGO WE HAD A
CHEAP APARTMENT, A CHEAP CAR, SLEPT ON A SOFA BED AND
WATCHED A 10-INCH BLACK AND WHITE TV, BUT I GOT TO SLEEP
EVERY NIGHT WITH A HOT 21-YEAR-OLD GAL.

‘NOW I HAVE A $500,000.00 HOME, A $45,000.00 CAR, A
NICE BIG BED AND A PLASMA SCREEN TV, BUT I’M SLEEPING WITH
A 51 YEAR OLD WOMAN. IT SEEMS TO ME THAT YOU’RE NOT HOLDING
UP YOUR SIDE OF THINGS.’

MY WIFE IS A VERY REASONABLE WOMAN. SHE TOLD ME TO GO OUT
AND FIND A HOT 21-YEAR-OLD GAL, AND SHE WOULD MAKE SURE THAT
I WOULD ONCE AGAIN BE LIVING IN A CHEAP APARTMENT, DRIVING A
CHEAP CAR, SLEEPING ON A SOFA BED AND WATCHING A 10-INCH
BLACK AND WHITE TV.

AREN’T OLDER WOMEN GREAT? THEY REALLY KNOW HOW TO SOLVE YOUR MID- LIFE CRISIS!

Good one, Kristi!!!

Loving God, Help us remember the birth of Jesus,
that we may share in the song of the angels,
the gladness of the shepherds,
and worship of the wise men.

Close the door of hate
and open the door of love all over the world.
Let kindness come with every gift and good desires with every greeting.
Deliver us from evil by the blessing which Christ brings,
and teach us to be merry with clear hearts.

May the Christmas morning make us happy to be thy children,
and Christmas evening bring us to our beds with grateful thoughts,
forgiving and forgiven, for Jesus’ sake. Amen.

— Robert Louis Stevenson

The answer is: What is a real mother………

MOTHERS……………………………………………………..

Real Mothers don’t eat quiche; they don’t have time to make it.

Real Mothers know that their kitchen utensils are probably in the sandbox.

Real Mothers often have sticky floors, filthy ovens and happy kids

Real Mothers know that dried play dough doesn’t come out of carpets.

Real Mothers don’t want to know what the vacuum just sucked up.

Real Mothers sometimes ask ‘Why me?’ and get their answer when a little voice says, ‘Because I love you best.’

Real Mothers know that a child’s growth is not measured by height or years or grade…It is marked by the progression of Mommy to Mom to Mother..
